I gane this book a five star rating only because it came as a part of a package deal. If I had bought the first book only, I would have been bummed that the romance is just beginning, even though the mystery is solved. These three books are intricately related as Trudy and Hiram are siblings, all the men are close friends and the women belong to the Ladies' Shooting Club (that Trudy starts). Murder, arson, and armed robbery are only a few of the serious crimes that Sheriff Ethan and the Ladies' Shooting Club work together to bring the culprits to justice.
On another note, I read a preview of the first Prairie Dreams novel in the back of this book, but then I was bummed to see that it (and the other two books in the series) were not available as ebooks. I would love to see the series as a 3in1, like this book.
